"if i were you" as written by and Joel Lindsey....
If I were you
I would never let me go
If I were you
I would always love me so
I can't play your part in life
But I would surely walk my way
I cannot think the way you think
But I would never go away
You can trust me when I say
That I will always be for real
You can always count on me
No matter how alone you feel
If I were you
I would never let me go
If I were you
I would always love me so
If I were you
I would never
I would always
I can't tell you what to do
I can only hope for more
More decisions to be good
Like the way they were before
I can't dream the things you dream
Cause I would not know where to start
Life is never what is seems
When two souls are far apart
I don't want to know
How it feels to lose a friend
And if I were you
I would never leave again
If I were you
I would never let me go
If I were you
I would always love me so
If I were you
If I were you
I would never let me go
If I were you
I would always love me so
If I were you

    General Commentwhat happened to the lyrics?!?!?! here's the complete ones:

    If I were you
    I would never let me go
    If I were you
    I would always love me so
    If I were you

    I can't play your part in life
    But I would surely walk my way
    I cannot think the way you think
    But I would never go away

    You can trust me when I say
    That I will always be for real
    You can always count on me
    No matter how alone you feel

    If I were you
    I would never let me go
    If I were you
    I would always love me so
    If I were you

    I would never..
    I would always..

    I can't tell you what to do
    I can only hope for more
    More decisions to be good
    Like the way they were before

    I can't dream the things you dream
    'Cause I would not know where to start
    Life is never what it seems
    When two souls are far apart

    I don't wanna know
    How it feels to lose a friend
    And if I were you
    I would never leave again

    If I were you
    I would never let me go
    If I were you
    I would always love me so
    If I were you

    General Commentthis is one of my favorite dance songs. the meaning is really simple. the girl in this song is hoping that this person will return the feelings she has for them. but this person seems to have lost interest, and now they're drifting apart. so she's trying to persuade them to change their mind.

    for some reason, this song makes my heart wrench... in a good way, that is :|
